The arrogance of humble Christian ministry

When you do ministry in the spirit (and in the Spirit) of the gospel, it beckons a humility unlike many things in this world; servant-heartedness, other-person-centeredness, the willingness to sacrifices ones own desires and preferences and opinions for the good of others people’s growth.
However, this humility carries an arrogance to it…
It’s the arrogance that says, “I think you need to hear THIS from God’s word” or “I know you’d like to just hang out! but I insist we pray together” or “I know you’d prefer it went like that, but this will help us love more people with the gospel”
Ultimately it’s the arrogance that dares to show people their sin, and tell them, on God’s behalf, to repent and entrust themselves to Jesus.
The more humbly you see yourself, the more likely you are to put your status on the line when urging people towards Christ.
